Lilystars Records is celebrating signing acclaimed indie singer-songwriter Bryan Estepa to release his fifth studio album, ‘Every Little Thing,’ on May 19, 2016. But first, here is the introductory single off the album, Object of My Disaffection.
Based in Sydney, Australia, Estepa was born and raised in a musical family in Cubao, Quezon City in the heart of Manila. His musical influences range from Muddy Waters to 90’s Alternative music and Hall & Oates, but his constant go-to artists are The Beatles and their respective solo projects, Neil Young, The Beach Boys, The Band, You Am I, and Elliott Smith. The Beatles are very evident in ‘Object of My Disaffection’ with catchy, repeating melodies well-balanced with complex harmonies. Likened to a cross between Alt-Country and Power Pop, Estepa calls himself simply a singer-songwriter, citing more recent inspirations as Brian Wilson, Ryan Adams and Wilco. Estepa’s sound holds appeal for anyone seeking a satisfying listening experience of thoughtful lyrics, memorable melodies and rich layers of well-rendered harmonies
